Final Four, Baby!!

I'm sure you've heard, but tomorrow is a VERY big deal in these parts. That's because for the FIRST TIME EVER the University of Louisville Cardinals will take on the University of Kentucky Wildcats in the Final Four. This truly is epic. I mean, "Kentucky is to basketball what Texas is to football." AMEN!

The rivalry is getting heated around here which means lots of fun pictures are circling the internet. So, which way do I cheer? I'm glad you asked!

I am first and foremost, a Western Kentucky Hilltoppers Fan. I mean it is my Alma Meter. However, I am also a UK fan. I grew up in Lexington and my momma would disown me if I was anything but. So, as long as WKU isn't in the mix... I BLEED BLUE!!

Well, I happened to marry a Louisville fan which to my parents was right up there with marrying a non-Baptist. Luckily, we are of the same religious background so my family overlooked this one flaw. In fact, we have a lot of fun with the rivalry.

Eric's groom's cake was a House Divided. Really. It was in the shape of a house with the UK logo on top and the Cardinals logo on bottom. Can you tell which way our Baker cheered?

The above picture is my prediction for the outcome of tomorrow's game. Sadly, I will be the solo UK fan. Eric and his family will be watching it with us, and they have managed to brainwash my innocent child into cheering for the Cardinals. Oh, the agony!

As with all UK v. Louisville games, we have a wager. The winning team will influence what Eli wears on Sunday. He has jerseys for each the winner will be sported on his shirt the following day.

As a side bar I would like to confess one small thing. Although I will be cheering for my hometown team, I won't be too upset of Louisville wins. That's because Eric would win the bracket bet at work and bring home a nice chunk of change that would sooth all my woes away.


ooooooh...C-A-T-S Cats, CATS, CATS!!

GO BIG BLUE!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. You guys crack me up! Hunter will be cheering with you complete with his UK hat and shirt :)

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
